Gingerbread Village Stockings Well... I know they're not "stockings", but you can fill the shops and houses in this darling village to their rooftops with little gifts and candies. Something a little bit different to hang on your Christmas mantel. You can choose your own elements and sizes to personalize your houses any way you'd like! Use the applique method of your choice. Sizes are 9" wide by any length you'd like! One story or a high rise apartment, it's up to you!
